Coconut Oil for Common Cold

Can coconut oil help with the common cold? Me and my brother get it on a regular basis, like every month… Will regular consumption of coconut oil help? Thanks!

Hi Rhea,

Yes, coconut oil can help with your common cold problem, especially if both of you consume it regularly! That’s because the best defense against the common cold is a robust immune system.

All of us are bound to catch a cold at some points in time. But as long as your bodily defenses are functioning normally, which coconut oil helps achieve very well, you and your brother’s regular bouts against the cold virus should be few and far between.

Best regards,
